Apparently Prom is right around the corner judging by how many frakking radio commercials I keep hearing about tux and limo rentals (and yes, I still listen to the radio, I’m secretly a Luddite) and while I appreciate the beauty in which dressing up for a fancy dress party can be, there has been a lot of years between that golden age of slipping into a shimmery dress without layering my body in Spanx and now, where my idea of dressing up is a pair of bedazzled jeggings. So count me as a “Meh” when it comes to Prom season.
But ever since I found out that Kentucky Fried Chicken is selling a limited supply of corsages created around one of their drumsticks (for just $20 + shipping), I’m sort of jealous that I’m no longer a viable candidate as a prom date (yep, I’m in it for some food surrounded by flowers).
Now, if you’re slightly freaked about a smelly chicken leg being shipped to teenagers as it slowly decomposes between the time they receive it in the mail and prom night, don’t be. According to KFC’s website…Each corsage kit includes a $5 KFC gift check, so you can customize your corsage with Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken. Whichever best matches her dress. Local corsages will have fresh baby’s breath and out-of-town corsages will have silk baby’s breath.
So see, there will only be a limited chance that the lucky couple will be infected with salmonella poisoning so stop worrying.
After the break is a wonderful ad for the chicken corsage that will no doubt make a special night even tastier…God, I’m hungry.
